ThaΓ―s Lona - CUBE

400 FOLLOWERS SAY WHAAAAT!? 😱

Thanks to everyone! First and foremost. Also, I'm sorry. It took me time to write this review as I struggled picking a record that either felt worth discussing or for which I had stuff to say about. I tried reviewing Radiohead's "OK Computer": didn't work... I tried reviewing Linkin Park's "Minutes to Midnight": didn't work... I had plans reviewing Godspeed You! Black Emperor's "Lift Yr Skinny Fists..." originally planned for an ... read more

Conan Gray - Lonely Dancers
75
Taaaaake ooooooon meeeeeee

So Conan Gray's new single is pretty unexpected to say the least. Instead of his trademark folk-pop music, we are hearing a synthpop track that emulates the sound of the 70's/80's. The sad boi era seems complete, now it's time to party πŸ˜— (not shading I liked parts of both his first two records and I'm rooting for him)

"Lonely Dancers" is nothing all that new or special but I'm pretty intrigued to see where the LP will go. It's a cool bop.

March Mallow - A Journey in Time
70
March Mallow is a French jazz band that I got the chance to see perform two days ago. I was tired as shit but I still enjoyed it.
I don't think their goal is to reset the genre but they effectively pay homage to classic jazz from the 20th century. I guess it goes without saying the crowd was mostly hyped when they interpreted "I Put a Spell on You," one of the most iconic jazz songs ever. The cheering right after was pretty awesome.

Their debut record "A Journey in Time" ... read more

Taylor Swift - Midnights
50
So this is 2023 Album of the Year according to the Grammys. Hum... Alright...

Let's just say I never were a swiftie. Hell, I haven't heard any Taylor Swift record in full prior to "Midnights." I tried "folklore" once as it apparently was produced with indie music vibes which is what I love the most. Maybe I should hear it again since right now I don't remember much from it. It kind of sums up my thoughts on Taylor Swift's music: I don't find it all that interesting. It ... read more

Sigur RΓ³s - Takk...
100
(Original rating: 8.5/10)
My mental health hasn't been the best lately and I remembered how much this record had brought to me. It gave me hope, it gave me something good to feel, it made me feel comfortable with its warmth, its creativity, its scale... It was about time to use it in order to have better thoughts.

Sigur Rós' fourth album "Takk..." feels like this one person in your life that's always cheering you up. It tells you "I know you can do it. I know you WILL do ... read more

HEEKA - The Haunted Lemon
85
"Great album that's gonna be disregarded in 2024 part one"

Its title might be puzzling but Flemish singer HEEKA's debut "The Haunted Lemon" easily becomes a gem as you're hearing it. We're being greeted by an acapella soft pop song with the first track "My Little Mushroom (Not The Drug)" and then by the second track "Useless" with its creepy folk vibe. Then plays "The Blue Door" and these three songs are showing one of this record's strengths: ... read more

Sick as well. It started last week exactly, and it fucking sucks. I'm getting better, and I'm no longer bed-ridden, but I still don't feel the best physically. Mentally, I'm doing quite good tbh. Don't know why, but I feel really joyed today which I am glad to feel as it has been a while.

So excited to hear from you! ^^ I probably should've initiated a conversation sooner. Sorry for the long time of not talking. Hope you're doing well :)
